Absolutely fantastic. A must see to view the Valley of the nobles from the air. Awesome
From pickup to return, it was excellent and good value - very much enjoyed by both of us elderly travellers.
It is a lovely thing to do, and was well organised.
The staff was friendly and informative. We had an appointment directly after our flight and the staff drove us to our destination. I would recommend this experience to everyone!
It's a definite must do while in Luxor. The view is amazing from the balloon and you get a great insight to the contrast between green fields and the desert.
What an amazing experience!! I had my doubts at first. Yet when everything from the pick-up to drop off at the hotel, to the safety aspects, to the balloon ride itself went so smoothly, well.... what can I say. It's a MUST for anybody visiting Luxor. Do not miss it!!!
Wonderful experience and very nice and professional crew.
I would strongly recommend this trip if going to Luxor! The guide picked us up on time at our hotel and the whole process was seamless. Good clear instructions of what is expected of you in terms of safety. I am usually a bit scared of heights but that all seemed to disappear when the balloon was in the air. The view is amazing and you can hear people talking on the ground as well as animals. I would take a hat as when the fire is blasting it can get really hot. We were in the air for just over an hour and its worth every penny!!! We were back in our hotel in time for breakfast. If you go to Luxor make sure you do 2 things - visit the Valley of the Kings and do the hot air balloon ride!!!!
This was one of the highlights of our Egyptian holiday, well worth the early morning start. The morning was so peaceful and quiet, all we could hear was the balloons firing and the animals on the ground waking up. Its much cooler than later in the day and probably the best photo op of Hatshepshut Temple before the crowds descend after breakfast. After the flight, people appeared from nowhere singing and dancing and banging on drums to celebrate. It stayed fairly low most of the time too which gave fantastic views of all the random temples and monuments scattered about the place. You MUST do this if you go to Luxor.
The flight was wonderful but very pricy honestly. Each balloon carried around 24 people so I feel overcharged. Really stunning views from the air after all.
The flight was great but after being picked up at 5am, we waited on the boat to cross the Nile for almost a hour while numerous other boats left and we could seen balloons taking off. So we missed the sunrise. The flight itself was great.
my trip was very good. the pilot was excellent, he told us all about the surrounding countryside and the points of interest.. we were picked up on time.the only disappointment was that i expected to see the sunrise from the balloon but we were too late getting arbourne and so it rose whilst the balloon was being inflated. apart from that, it was an excellent trip
